There's two papers, one on stories and one on poems. There's two halves to the stories paper - on the first half you answer questions on either the short stories anthology or one of the other stories, you'll have been studying it in school. On the second half you answer questions on another story. There's two parts to this as well: they give you a short extract, and you answer a question on ONLY that section, and then you answer another question on a related topic but about the whole novel.
On the poetry paper, again they split it into two parts. On the first half, there's a choice of two questions for each cluster from the Moon on the Tides anthology - you choose ONE, do only that, then go to the second half of the paper. There, they ask you a question about a poem you haven't seen before.
The stories paper is on Tuesday 20th May and the poetry paper is on Thursday 22nd May, I hope this has been helpful and good luck!
